Harlan's Giant Ground Sloth Right Premaxilla

Nov 26, 2012

Recently found in Box 14, this is a Harlan's giant ground sloth, Paramylodon harlani, right premaxilla, which is the part of the skull that supports the upper lip. It is the first sloth premaxilla to have been found in Project 23, and a rare element to find at Rancho La Brea. We have also found the back half of a sloth skull, vertebrae and ribs in the same deposit.
